Bro has given me his 'spare' laptop, running W8. It is so slow I can hardly bear to use it, due to unwanted scripts running and popups and general junk.
I can't find the popup blocker I used on my W7 machine - I can't actually remember what it was called anyway, but none of them look or sound familiar. I've got AdBlock in what ever incarnation it's in now, which has helped.
I am beset by rubbish clogging things up which I've never seen before - a load of ad spaces in between threads on I'm On for instance. Scrolling a thread is almost impossible as it is slowed down by heaven knows what.
How on earth do I get back to my peaceful, ad-free existence?
